While I have previously mentioned that the only prerequisites for uploading stuff to Youtube are minimal (microphone, camera and opinions), it is increasingly becoming a treasure trove of information and entertainment. I am particularly pleased by the increased availability of full length documentaries and concerts.
So you talk about mobs and the working classes as if they were the question. You've got that eternal idiotic idea that if anarchy came it would come from the poor. Why should it? The poor have been rebels, but they have never been anarchists; they have more interest than anyone else in there being some decent government. The poor man really has a stake in the country. The rich man hasn't; he can go away to New Guinea in a yacht. The poor have sometimes objected to being governed badly; the rich have always objected to being governed at all. Aristocrats were always anarchists. - G.K. Chesterton

I fully admit that people (such as my son Nick) can get very useful instructional material from Youtube. It's just that I am a weird sort of dinosaur; increasingly, I find all forms of visual and even audio material, including films & TV something I just don't enjoy, so I retreat to the written word (plus pictures/diagrams/graphs of course)
